Business Semantics Glossary Enabling MDM Governance in Pharma

The R&D group of a large international pharma company made a strategic choice to make data governance an integral part of their MDM project to ensure business involvement and therefore increase the chances of success of the program. A key goal was to align systems and people across drug development departments. Both business and technical stakeholders collaborated using the Data Stewardship capabilities of the Collibra Data Governance platform to define the key concepts of the Information model in the Collibra Business Semantics Glossary.

As a result research and other information can now be reused in new developments. Another important business benefit is the creation of a central place online with managed communities, synonyms, reference data and FDA regulations that can be shared with outsourcing partners.

Felix co-founded Collibra in 2008 and serves as its Chief Executive Officer. As its CEO, Felix is responsible for Collibra’s global strategy and has lead Collibra from idea to conception to over 8 years of record growth. Before Collibra, Felix focused on Semantic Technology research at STARLab at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. He holds a master in Computer Science and Software Engineering from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and a master in General Management from the Vlerick Business School.
